Mountaineer Food Utensils

This Spoon Fork Design is Ideal for the Rugged Outdoors Person

— June 23, 2013 — Lifestyle
The Semi-Horned Oblong Versatile Eating Ladle or S.H.O.V.E.L is the latest ingenuity to come from spoon-fork designs. 

The S.H.O.V.E.L has a serrated knife, a bottle cap opener and a six feet red para-cord for extreme outdoor meal sessions. The body of the spork is made from durable titanium, which makes the spoon fork design quite a rugged food utensil. The company also made the product open-sourced, which means customers can design the spork into something that fits their certain aesthetic needs.

The Semi-Horned Oblong Versatile Eating Ladle shouldn’t just be limited to outdoor usage, but it should also be incorporated in everyday meals. Replacing all your spoons and forks with the S.H.O.V.E.L is a great way of looking like a rugged outdoors-man inside your home.
Trend Themes
1. Multipurpose Utensils - Opportunities for creating all-in-one utensils for a variety of use cases, including outdoors and everyday use.
2. Open-source Product Design - Chances to allow customers to customize products to their aesthetic needs, creating a more personalized and engaging experience.
3. Durable Materials for Utensils - Opportunities to develop new inventories of utensils made from durable, lightweight, and innovative materials.
Industry Implications
1. Outdoor Equipment - Outdoor retailers and manufacturers are well positioned to develop and market the S.H.O.V.E.L to consumers who are looking for multi-functional utensils for their camping and outdoor needs.
2. Kitchenware and Home Goods - Manufacturers of home goods and kitchenware should consider incorporating the S.H.O.V.E.L into their product lines, creating an opportunity for customers to use more rugged and durable utensils in their everyday lives.
3. Product Design and Innovation - Companies or consultants specializing in product design and innovation could work with inventors and designers to create unique utensils that have multiple uses and are made from durable materials.
